The Guardian reports:
The WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is to be extradited to Sweden [from the U.K.] to face allegations of rape and sexual assault. Assange will appeal, his legal team has confirmed. If they lose he will be sent to Sweden in 10 days.
He will “be held in custody,” the report also said, “because there is no system of bail in Sweden until a possible trial or release.”
Update: The good news, if you can call it that: Assange will be bailed, after all, on the same terms as before … at a high price.
March 3 — And MUCH WORSE NEWS for Bradley Manning.
